Does anyone here has this DVD? If so, could you tell me what aspect ratio it has and wether it's video or film?

I don't show it as ever having been available on DVD - seems you got a bootleg.

It is available as an import (http://us.yesasia.com/en/prdTransfer.aspx/pid-1002327174/). I never said I had any version by the way, just asking out of curiosity.

Too bad you're completely wrong. IVL handles all the official HK Ghibli releases, they aren't bootlegs. And if you don't believe that please take a look at Studio Ghiblis website and scroll down a bit to find IVL's releases listed: http://www.ntv.co.jp/ghibli/info_y2/KAIGAI.htm. Next time please do a bit more research before so ignorantly labeling an official dvd as a bootleg especially when a simple google search would have shown you what I linked.

To you chainmax it's 1.85 anamorphic and I'm pretty sure its progressive too.

Then you must not have looked hard enough. It's been released in Japan, Taiwan and China. http://www.nausicaa.net/miyazaki/video/mimi/

Well maybe you should actually do more then look at the languages since in many cases you would be wrong because there are numerous official anime DVDs with Chinese and Japanese tracks on them.

I wish it was released here already: Amazon list it as a March 7, 2006 release. Oh well, it's not that far off :).

I have that DVD. It's an R3. It says 1.85:1 on the box, but I am not sure how to check for sure.
I just ran in in DGIndex. It's Interlaced.

One way to know for sure is to open it in VDub and step through it frame by frame. If you see a 3-progressive, 2-interlaced frame sequence that repeats itself, then it's IVTCable. In order to see the aspectratio, you should open it in something like ZoomPlayer.

I don't know enough abut VDub to figure out the progressive thing. I don't see a stats window I can turn on.
And Zoomplayer has no issues with the audio, but can't play the video. Just a black screen.
Sorry
